The Punto is Fiat’s popular, reliable and very spacious super-mini hatchback. The car was first launched in 1993 and after more than 20 years in production, 8.5 million Puntos have been rolled out. Now in its third generation, the latest Punto benefits from excellent new styling and Fiat’s technologically advanced engines which are very cheap to run and have low environmental impact. New Fiat Punto prices remain competitive with the basic entry model listing at just over £10K.
The Punto has undergone various redesigns during its distinguished history. The car was launched to replace the ageing Fiat Uno and achieved immediate praise, winning European Car of the Year in 1994. Sports, GT and convertible models were added to this winning design and the Punto enjoyed high sales into the new Millennium. After successful variants with the Grande Punto and Punto van, the third generation Punto was introduced in 2012 with a brand new tail and cabin plus advanced engine technology.
Safety, style and technology operate in perfect harmony aboard the new 2017 Punto. The high-strength steel body, hill start and fog lights all come as standard. Inside, the redesigned cabin offers an excellent choice of refined colour combinations. These are complemented by a stylish and ergonomic control panel featuring a sophisticated on-board infotainment system and driver assist.
With a wide choice of versions in 3 or 5-door, plus manual or automatic transmission, the new Punto 2017 model offers outstanding options for those wanting a well-equipped and proven performer, boasting a surprisingly stylish new cabin. Low fuel consumption plus cheap and widely available spare parts make the Punto a good financial choice, especially given that sell-on values have always been healthy.
The 2017 Punto houses a good selection of modern engines with emissions as low as 90g per km, thanks to Fiat’s advanced air technologies which features stop-start. These new engines retain the Punto’s reputation for nimble and well-balanced performance but now offer low cost motoring with highly competitive mpg and CO2 figures for their class. For certain models, the latest multi-jet diesel engines will clock over 80mpg in average conditions.
There are four classes of Punto available. Air-bags, ABS brakes, central locking and electric windows all come as standard with the entry Punto Pop, whereas the Easy trim adds more features and refinement. Fiat have also produced two additional sports style models; the GBT special edition and the high-performing and distinctive Punto Sporting. With a total of 23 spec combinations available, the choice is outstanding.
